What we heard: With over 2.7 million copies sold in the US alone, Gears of War has been an unqualified hit. So it would be totally unsurprising if the Xbox 360 and now PC shooter got the sequel treatment. After all, Epic Games' vice president Mark Rein has fueled rumours that a sequel was in the works. As far back as November 2006, he told readers on the game's official forums that Gears of War was meant to be a trilogy. "If we can keep making quality games that fans obviously love...then why would we have to stop at three? I don't see the Metal Gear Solid, Mario, Grand Theft Auto, or Final Fantasy series (among others) stopping at three."
At last year's Game Developers' Conference, famed designer Cliff "CliffyB" Bleszinski basically said his employer does "intend to do a sequel" to Gears of War. Though Rein has steadfastly denied that such a thought has even occurred to Epic executives, speculation has been building that the next chapter in Marcus Fenix's fight against the Locust Horde would be unveiled soon. Given the relative paucity of Xbox 360 exclusives this year, the latest rumors have the game's unveiling being a surprise announcement at the forthcoming 2008 Game Developers Conference.
Sorry about the picture I tried to put a new one but it didn’t let me.
